acceleratAR

Around the globe there are more than 30000 particle accelerators! The 27 km Large Hadron Collider (LHC) may be the most famous example, but you're likely to find an accelerator much closer to home.

Medics have been using particle accelerators since the 1950s to target cancers with highly focused beams of particles, making radiotherapy one of the most common uses of a particle accelerator. Your local hospital may host a number of accelerators.

Today (from the comfort of your own classroom, office or sofa) you can build your very own augmented reality particle accelerator!

To get started, all you'll need is a set of our paper accelerator components (pick yours up from our website) and our Android app. Place the components and begin to explore the physics of the electromagnetic fields that make up a particle acclerator.

This app was brought to you by physicists at the Cockcroft Institute and University of Liverpool. We're working hard to bring you the next generation of particle acelerator, including designs for high energy physics and medical use.

We hope that you enjoy building your very own acceleratAR!
